Thread: Subscapularis Repair

  1. #1

    Default Subscapularis Repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm not sure how to code this arthroscopic sx: The subscapularis was repaired with 2 Revo suture anchors, one placed medially and one laterally in the lesser tuberosity. The medial suture was passed into mattress fashion, the lateral suture in simple fashion to achieve a footprint-type reapproximation to the tendon tuberosity.
    The DX is subscapularis tear.
